Director, Thriving Earth Exchange


Raj Pandya directs AGU’s Thriving Earth Exchange, a program connecting scientists and communities, including historically marginalized communities, and helps them work together to design and lead science that addresses community priorities. He is interested in how the sciences can be more participatory, how inclusivity contributes to scientific innovation and societal relevance, and how the sciences can be allies in advancing equity in society. Raj chaired the National Academies committee on “Designing Citizen Science to Support Science Learning,” and has or is serving on the board for Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Public Lab, the Citizen Science Association, the Anthropocene Alliance, and ISET International. His PhD investigated how large thunderstorms grow and persist.
